Former TNA/Impact Announcer Don West Diagnosed with Brain Cancer

Former TNA/Impact Wrestling announcer Don West announced on Washington-based news radio station 560 KPQ’s website that he has been recently diagnosed with brain lymphoma.

Hello everybody,

Don West here to tell you about how disappointed I am not to be talking about the Seattle Seahawks, the Mariners, the Wenatchee Wild and everything else that we love to talk about every day on the Don West Show.

Many of you have wondered where I have been and why the show is on hiatus. So I want to share this news directly with you. I have been diagnosed with a brain lymphoma and will begin immediate treatment.

I want to thank my wife Terri for her love and support, my family and everyone that works at Cherry Creek Media and KPQ. I also want to thank the Don West Show’s incredible sponsors and my friends for all the prayers that are coming my way. I am praying the chemotherapy will help me heal faster and hopefully I’ll be back on the radio soon.

I can’t wait until this is all over and I can be back with you all again, I love you all!

Don West

West worked in TNA/Impact Wrestling from 2002 to 2012 primary in a color commentary role alongside Mike Tenay. West last appeared for Impact at their Slammiversary XV event in July of 2017.
